LEARNING RESOURCES POLICY
Freedom Thinkers Education PBL Society
Freedom Thinkers Education PBL Society expects learning resources to be appropriate for exemplary learning. The Principal will collaboratively and collectively work with the educational staff to both select and remove learning resources from the school on an annual basis.
Having good learning resources is imperative for good learning. By updating and “weeding out” inappropriate material, the school will remain current and progressive with the pedagogical advances of the time. This is not to say that “old stories” etc. can not be used in new and innovative ways. For example, old reader stories may be used in literature circles and in other ways so that the stories are just the “vehicle” for the new learning not the “end all; be all” as was possibly originally intended.
In accordance with this policy, the Freedom Thinkers Education staff will review resources annually. This review may result in some resources being discarded and some resources being bought as required.
The educational staff will refer to the learning standards for grades when discarding or buying resources.
Core Competencies will also be addressed when buying resources.
COMPLAINTS REGARDING RESOURCES
Any complaints regarding the use of resources will be dealt with as any complaint would be dealt with through the Complaints and Appeals Policy (Please see “Complaints and Appeals Policy).
